A smirk . Really.
Bottom line, while Ribeiro is by no means perfect, he's better than any centre currently on the Habs roster and has been for some time.
The trading of Ribeiro and Grabovski were devastating blows to the team in the long term. It weakened the centre position to the point of leading Gainey to the Gomez decision.
But that ship has sailed, the team still needs to overhaul the centre position on this team but not with Ribeiro.
